WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - One of two people charged in the shooting death of a Wichita State University student has been sentenced to 21 years and one month in prison.

Twenty-three-year-old Isaiah Copridge was sentenced Thursday on charges of second-degree murder and aggravated robbery in the death of 23-year-old Rayan Ibrahim Baba. Baba, an undergraduate student from Saudi Arabia, was found shot in a parking lot of one of the university’s dormitories on Aug. 8.

According to an affidavit, Baba had contacted Copridge’s co-defendant, Eboni Fingal, about sexual services she advertised online shortly before he was killed.

Fingal faces first-degree murder and aggravated robbery charges in the case. She has pleaded not guilty.
